The Avon Grove Wildcats website was established in 2000 to keep our parents, coaches, volunteers, community and fans informed on the growth and progress of our Football and Cheerleading programs.

THANK YOU!!!

Special Thank you to all of the volunteers who came out on Saturday to help prepare the Harmony Park field and Field House.  They all did an incredible job at cleaning, organizing and painting.  Special thanks to Ruppert Landscaping for sending a crew to aerate, fertilize and apply lime to the whole field for free.  We're extremely grateful to them and all of the other volunteers who helped us out.  We're looking forward to a great 2016 Season!!!

Custom Helmets

Note that although the Wildcats provide its players with quality helmets - some families still choose to purchase their own helmets. This is permitted by the organization under 2 conditions:

1) The color should match the color of the Wildcats' helmet which is "Vegas Gold"
2) The helmet needs to be certified as reconditioned every other year (to be extra safe - the Wildcats organization reconditions its helmet every year).  This is a USA Football, Bert Bell and Insurance requirement. The helmet will need to have a valid reconditioning sticker on it.

If you're going to be using your own helmet but don't know how to get it reconditioned - please contact me and I'll be happy to give you some recommendations.

CONCUSSION SAFETY

The Avon Grove Wildcats takes the health and safety of each athlete very seriously, and makes it the priority of every coach and volunteer in the organization.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Symptoms include, headache, confusion, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. The chance of injury rises when proper blocking and tackling techniques have not been taught to the athletes, and when equipment is not up to code.

In order to increase safety The Avon Grove Wildcats have implemented USA Football’s Heads Up Football Program. This program will make sure that each coach in the program knows the proper technique and will make sure these techniques are implemented in both practice and games.

We have also joined forces with Riddell in this process. It is recommended that helmets are reconditioned every two seasons to increase safety we have made a commitment to have our helmets reconditioned by Riddell before EVERY season.

 

For further information on Riddell’s Reconditioning Process please watch the video below:

Wildcats Fundraising thru Sponsorship and Donations

In order to make a lot of the changes that we’re looking to do this year, we are going to need more financial support than we’ve ever received.  Unfortunately, registrations fees alone aren’t enough to cover the full cost of the program – especially in a year like 2016 where we are replacing uniforms for both football players and cheerleaders. 

Many other clubs overcome these shortfalls by requiring players to do significant fundraising.  We know that many times the burden of fundraising ultimately falls on the parents – who in many cases are already over-booked.  Therefore, our hope is to be able secure the funds we need via sponsorship and donations and relieve parents of that burden.

There are four primary ways to contribute to the Wildcats (sponsorship and corporate-matching/check/credit card donations).  To the extent possible, we hope you’ll consider supporting the Wildcats in at least one of these four ways and that you’ll pass this email along to anyone you know who you think may be interested in supporting us.

-------------------

Business Sponsorship
Our Business sponsorship program that will not only give Businesses an opportunity to support the Wildcats but we believe that it will also provide them with a lot of marketing value that is hard to come by in this area.  There are several packages that include various combinations of field banners, ads in our Game Day Program, logos on our website, etc.

Note that there is one special package that is only available to the parents of a Wildcat called “The Wildcat”.  If your employer is willing to sponsor the Wildcats for $1,000, not only will they receive a valuable marketing package from the Wildcats, but your child will also get a free registration.

Please contact Matt Hepworth at mdhepworth1@gmail.com for more information.

Check Donation
To support the Wildcats with a check donation, please make the check out to the “Avon Grove Wildcats” and mail it to PO Box 103, West Grove, PA 19390.  You can also hand a check to Elsje Kumpon or myself in person.

Credit Card Donation
In order to make a credit card donation in $25 increments, simply go to www.avongrovewildcats.com and go to the “Online Donations” link on the left hand panel.  You can also go there directly by clicking here: http://avongrovewildcats.com/Store/Item.asp?id=18991&n=&org=avongrovewildcats.com.

Corporate Matching Donation Programs
There are several corporate programs that allow employees to contribute to a non-profit organization where the company then matches the donation amount.  Organizations like Bank of America and United Way participate in programs like this.  If your company offers this type of program, please consider selecting the Wildcats as an organization that you support.
